Works as the Head IT Technician

My most memorable moments I have with MedCerts include the support I got from Student Services. They knew my personal situation and provided me with ideas and resources to manage my study time knowing that I am a mother with young children, a military spouse, and working odd jobs. Over all, the kindness, support and personable experience I had with the team was incredible.
